Re: Can cervical issues cause headaches
Problems in both the cervical and thoracic area can cause migraines, it can shoot pain upward like nerve pain, or cause a spasmic tightening pain, it can go into your jaws, cheeks, and eyes too. I get both mild headaches and migraines with it. The only thing that stopped that for me was physical therapy and reducing my back/neck pain through exercising, ultrasounds, ice, and myofacial pain release. I don't get headaches too bad now, but if you don't get treatment for your neck, they will just keep coming back headstrong. I used to take excedrin migraine tablets and it helped some.
